Sweet Potato Falafels

At the moment the weather in England is miserable. We normally love this time of year but frankly, there has just been too much rain! This weekend we attempted to inject a bit of sunshine into our bleak winter by  making some sweet potato falafels which took us straight back to Morocco for 30 minutes!

To make 10-12 falafel balls you will need;

1 large sweet potato

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

2 teaspoons of ground coriander

A handful of coriander leaves, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tablespoon of olive oil

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

100g of plain flour

Begin by peeling and dicing the sweet potato. Place in a microwavable bowl with a dribble of water and a lid. Pop in the microwave for 1-15 minutes until soft enough to mash.

Add the cumin, coriander, garlic, lemon juice and flour and mix together. Don’t forget to season!

Use your hands to divide the mixture and roll into balls of your preferred size then bake for 30 minutes on 180 (fan oven) turning throughout to brown all sides.

We stuffed our falafels into our fresh homemade pitta breads but they’d be great served at a party dipped into hummus.
